"MOMMY!!! There's a bug in the shower!" she screamed. She was thoroughly grossed out and showed it by her extremely dramatic reaction.
"I'm sure it's fine, Hannah. Just get in the shower." After fighting to get her there in the first place I wasn't about to lose the shower battle over a bug.
I did, however, decide to evaluate the situation. As I opened the shower curtain and surveyed the bottom of the tub I saw what had caught her eye and caused such a fuss.
"Hannah, that's a piece of green bean from Jeremiah's bath last night."
"Oh" was all she said before stepping into the shower, as cheerful as ever.
Hannah, shrieking and flipping out seconds before was now calm, cool, and collected. Seeing things for what they really are makes a world of difference, doesn't it?
The incident did make me wonder...what's more gross (or should that be "grosser"???) to find in the shower, a bug or green bean?
